Your membership gives you entrance each fall to a trade show floor alive with books - over 300 tables manned by sales representatives who work in your part of the country and who are familiar with both the rewards and the difficulties of selling books in the Southeast. You will be associating with nearly six hundred booksellers who enjoy the intimacy of a regional association where it is easy to discuss what works for them in bookselling and eager to learn what works for you.
The trade show schedule is packed with workshops and panels. You will meet many authors signing their books, speaking, or giving readings from their newly published books.The trade show is southern in its friendliness, social gatherings, and intimacy encouraging many informal exchanges of ideas.
The Binc Foundation will be holding a 50/50 raffle at the fall show to raise funds to assist booksellers. The raffle, titled KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, focuses on Binc's utility shut-off prevention assistance which helps booksellers keep lights and heat in their homes. Tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5 and the winner will take home half of the money collected. Binc's portion of the funds raised through this raffle will be used to assist booksellers facing an unexpected financial emergency. Be sure to visit Binc's table at the show for your chance to win.
